Involvement and Connections

Mid’s active chapter of Student Veterans of America provides you with a network of support and opportunities to engage in activities outside of the classroom. Through SVA, Mid students have gone on charter fishing trips, volunteered and served in surrounding communities, and formed deep and lasting bonds with their fellow service members.

The SVA works to empower veterans to be informed consumers of higher education and make the most of the transition to civilian life. Scholarship and training opportunities are also available to support academic growth and degree attainment.

At the heart of Mid’s student-led chapter, and in alignment with the national organization’s vision, this group “empowers veterans to be informed consumers of higher education and make the most of the transition to civilian life.” The national organization provides veteran scholarships and training opportunities to support academic growth and degree attainment.
